YOUNGWOOD, Pa. (AP) (AP)ong> - State police have charged a 14-year-old Youngwood boy with firing BBs at a neighbor's home and a nearby Dairy Queen from his bedroom, where his mother had grounded him for misbehaving.

Troopers from the Greensburg barracks aren't identifying the boy because he's being charged in juvenile court with reckless endangerment.

Officials said the incident happened July 18 in Youngwood.

According to police, the Dairy Queen owner saw the boy's gun protruding from the window after a deliver driver's arm was grazed by a BB, walked over to the house and told the boy's mother what was going on.

Authorities said the BBs also damaged a neighbor's front door, a window and the siding on his house.
